What Others Are Saying About Us

We have worked on numerous types of financing with Chesapeake Community Advisors over the past ten years.  They have ranged from FHA mark-to-market loans to Fannie Mae financing with various levels of renovations on  developments across the country.  What we have found is that there are very few advisors and partners like CCA who have the expertise to guide a deal literally from day one when looking at the feasibility of a deal  through to the construction and lease-up of a property.  We value working with CCA for their knowledge, ingenuity, dedication and hard work to come up with the best possible outcome for their partners and residents.
